"Fisheries managers are expecting some 250,000 sockeye salmon to return to the Columbia, with just under 202,000 of those headed to Canada via the Okanogan River. Last summer only a few more than 63,000 sockeye, of the 94,000 forecast, returned to the Columbia. That return didn’t allow for a fishery on the popular salmon. The numbers in 2020 should give anglers a chance to catch a few of the great-eating salmon, if they return as predicted. The most popular fishing spot is in the Brewster Pool, above Wells Dam, where the salmon will often times hold in the cooler Columbia River, before making their final run up the Okanogan to Osoyoos Lake.
